Scientists have taken a closer look at the massive forces surrounding black holes, and have found that the gravitational fields around them may just eddy and swirl, creating a turbulent region of space.
Scientists have learned a bit more about these black holes and have found that magnetic fields play an impressive role in the systems' dynamics.
NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Telescope has uncovered some new information about two classes of black-hole-powered galaxies.
A recent study examines victims of repeated sexual violence and the psycho-behavioral consequences associated with these issues. Findings show that the more frequently the problem occurs, it can cause increased risk of mental health issues.
How many supermassive black holes do you have to survey to learn more about them? You have to look at about 170,000. After a massive survey using NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), astronomers have poked a hole in a theory that has, until now, survived for decades.
NASA has released a spectacular new computer simulation that shows off one of the most violent events in the universe: a pair of neutron stars colliding, merging and forming a black hole.
In October 2012, a massive stellar explosion erupted in space. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at this data, and have reconstructed exactly how a black hole is formed.
For the first time ever, scientists have measured the corkscrew nature of a bright flash of light emitted from a dying star collapsing into a black hole. The new findings shed light on an event that happened almost 11 billion years ago.
Streaming jets of high-speed matter create some of the most spectacular objects in space. Now, scientists may have answered what mechanism creates these jets, revealing a bit more about the physics of our universe.
Black holes possess immense forces working within and around them. These structures in particular are some of the most important shapers and movers of the universe. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at black holes and galaxies' central bulges, revealing exactly how black holes shape the unive...
Scientists are employing technology to get a better look at how black holes swallow stars.
